What Are The Best Plant Pots to Use For Your Spider Plants

Spider plant pot

I can hear you thinking, “A whole article on POTS for Spider Plants? They’re just plant pots, for heaven’s sake!”

So let me tell you about all those times, when I first started out gardening years ago. I didn’t know what the heck I was doing.

Back then, I used anything to grow my spider plants in. Any container left lying around the property, even makeshift a few (disasters really).

BUT after tossing out (composting), my millionth (an exagerrated amount) spider plant, piling up useless containers, I did some eager beaver research, and started growing spider plants in the correct plant pots.

Here’s what I learnt.

Our wonderful spider plants (and spider plant babies) need a good quality, well-draining plant pots to grow and thrive in. I hate saying HIGH quality. Good quality is good enough.

And lucky for us, spider plants such an EASY indoor plants to grow thanks to their resilience and minimal effort to keep them alive and kicking in your home. [1].

And that’s all you need right?

As I mentioned above, the best planting pots to use for your spider plants have to come with adequate drainage holes spacious enough to hold spider plants’ roots.

There are hundreds of pots that suit spider plants on the market. You won’t run short of choice. But it can be challenging to pick one that’s SUITABLE if this is your first time buying a spider plant pot.

Below, are spider plant pots that I’ve used myself. I still have, and recommend for your spider plant journey.

Do I recommend any one spider plant pot specifically?

Nope, not at all. They are all fantastic to use. It’s up to you basically and whether whatever plant pot you choose would suit your inside homes design.

I’m no interior decorator, and my taste is pretty simple. I’ve gone with “black pots and white pots” in different materials, some with indented designs.

I’ve classified the plant pots below, in the type of material they come in. My only advice (as above) is to choose the plant pots that suit YOU, and looks fricken awesome with your current home decor.

Selecting The Best Pot For Spider Plants

Spider plant pots

The health of your spider plant depends on the quality of conditions it is exposed to. I think we all know that.  [2].

So before you settle on any random pot, understand the simple features you should look out for to start growing some gorgeous spider plants!

The plant pots as described throughout this article, come in various materials. Wood, corugated iron, different standards of plastic, ceramic and more.

All these materials are suitable for spider plants. No need to ovethink anything here.

Just ensure the pot plant itself is good-quality! You want to keep as much money in your wallet as possible right.

The size of pot you choose determines its suitability for spider plants [3]. Spider plants need ample space to spread their roots and grow optimally.

In other words my fellow gardeners, don’t use small pots.

spider plants planters

If you struggle with finding the right pot size, consider the plant’s root ball and get a pot double the size of the ball. The extra space provides the room for the roots to spread evenly.

But look for signs that your spider plant needs repotting and then, get a slightly larger pot.

Also, if you intend to plant more than one spider plant in one pot, you will need a bigger pot. Not rocket science but you knew that.

Additionally, spider plants grow pretty fast and may just require often repotting.

Drainage Holes

This is a no brainer, like most plants, spider plants do well in pots with drainage.

In Closing

Spider plants make awesome indoor house plants. That’s why you’re here. To find the best pots suitable to grow them in.

Elevating their Spider Plant beauty with the proper pot will totally spice up your indoor space.

All the pots reviewed above are ideal to use. I don’t recommend one specifically. You can choose your preferred pot according to the material and how it will look in your home both indoor and outdoors.
